Weekends off from CrossFit only make me super antsy to get back to the box come Monday morning. I was disappointed that the WOD looked so easy, but easy it was not! By the time I sat at my desk at 8, my hands were sooooo sore from the knee ups. My fingers and palms are blistered. Gross!
Mat has a library of CrossFit and Paleo books at the Ad Finem box, so I borrowed my first book. I dug into it last night and really got hooked! He must have 15-20 books, and I plan to go through every single one. I wonder if he will require me to get a library card?
I have made a big change in my life. I no longer eat 100 pounds of asparagus a day. The past 2 weeks I’ve been on a HUGE asparagus kick, but last week I felt beyond awful and bloated. I just felt gross. Part of it is from the change in CrossFit, but after this weekend, I realized the asparagus was just making me super bloated.
I cut back my asparagus intake from about 3 times a day to 1 1/2, and I found I felt a lot better instantly! I plan to still have some at breakfast, and maybe dinner, if I don’t have plans that night (serious), other than that, I need to get other colored veggies on my plate. Everything is green. Asparagus, cucumbers, green peppers. I need to chill a bit.
After work on Monday, I did Sunday activities… aka laundry, grocery shop, and meal prep. I was ultra lazy on Sunday and did none of that.
I grabbed all of this for $24, which will last me throughout the week. I already had plenty of yogurt, bananas and apples at my apartment.
I’m really loving these rotisserie chickens. For $4.98 I get all of this, which should give me about 3 1/2 meals. I rip all of the skin off so I save on the fat that is on the label. Nowadaways, the skin doesn’t even tempt me. I might have had a few bites of the dark meat while prepping this though. Now that I can’t get enough of! Side note, when ringing up my chicken, the cashier asked me if I wanted to hold my chicken. Why would I want to do that?
Tonight I have tentative plans to do something that I will suck at with someone who I haven’t seen in over a year. It should be a good bonding experience if it happens. If not, I have a date in bed with Season 8 of How I Met Your Mother! Yup, it comes out today and I plan on using my lunch hour to buy it.
Also, Neil Patrick Harris was my boyfriend in my dream the other night. I LOVE those melatonin dreams! 😉
Do you have weird dreams when you take melatonin?
Dark, light or skin: chicken/turkey?
I treat myself with dark on Thanksgiving, otherwise I’m straight up healthy. 🙂
